Having another poor game today.

Didnít mean to like this, thought you said good.

Thought he was quite good with some mad bits.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Thought this thread would be full of people like me calling for his head, but Iíve had a deep dive and thereís actually lots of reasonable posts from all kinds of posters willing him to settle and come back strong.

Very pleased for him because he did well against a wily operator in Glenn Murray, who did manage to spin him once or twice like.

Should be getting into the England side again shortly I think.

I do think heíll get exposed every now and again by pace, but thatís why half decent players with a bit of zip are so expensive, almost everyone struggles against a pace merchant.

@Bluedylan well, I did say I wasnít 100% convinced?

Despite him doing everything possible to have his own kecks down.

Not 100% convinced every single player we bought is bad and totally incapable of playing well to be honest.

Have any of our signings settled and been able to turn in good performances for a bit besides maybe Rooney? Heís a different animal altogether compared to most players on the planet though tbf.

Mad disrupted season, horrible first quarter in terms of fixtures and generally yeah we did buy the wrong sort of players and left insane glaring gaps...up front most obviously but other deficiencies have made themselves patently clear during the course of the season.

We donít even know what our best first 11 or fucking formation is! Weíre all over the place every other game.

I think we do the 4-3-3 for a bit and just try and fucking settle down a bit and bed some of these lads in, the ones that are left anyway.

I can count on one hand the amount of players who youíd think were good buys based on this season alone. Hard to judge any of them on this shitshow.

Had a mixed bag year, but ultimately I think he's a shown that even when he's good he's shite.

Knock a ball over his head into the box and he just can't deal with it.

Run at him quickly and he can't deal with it.

He's quite good on the ball, better than I thought originally, but probably not as good as Holgate.

I'd agree with all that apart from him being quite good on the ball, I think it's his biggest weakness. I don't mind him but think we can do so much better. It's Zouma +1 at cb for me. Mina really needs to improve to stand a chance of getting a starting spot as he's hardly covered himself in glory when he's played

Quite like him on the ball, he can pass. He can't drive forward which Zouma, Mina and Holgate can all do though.

We could really, really do with getting some proper minutes out of Yerry Mina. Was one of the highest rated prospects on the planet about 12 months ago.

Think we've either got potentially a proper player there and we just need to get him playing and settled, or we've been sold the biggest turkey in Everton history.

Either very good or fuckin awful

This is the problem with most of our squad I think.

Could do with some steady Eddie, 7/10 a week, hang your hat on him types.

Think Digne and Gomes are reliable, Davies is fairly consistent but Walcott is the most reliable to deliver exactly the same every game.

Digne and Gueye for me in terms of reliably good.

Gomes was 9/10 followed by a 4/10 in the space of 90 minutes at the weekend.

Walcott less said the better.

I like the lad and thinks he's a good player. I think he's been better than Zouma this season tbh

Definitely an argument to be made there.

Not for me.

Lob the ball anywhere near the channel Keane is manning and he struggles.

Think Zouma has covered for him a lot this season.

Both players are very poor in the air though which is a big issue for two big fellas at the back.

Anything over his head and he looks absolutely lost. Think he can deal with long balls though? Maybe he's a reverse funes mori.

Zouma, I'm sure when he joined Chelsea he looked outstanding in the air. Oh well. Not our issue in the long term I suppose.

£50m for Micheal Keane would be the deal of the century from Brands.

Won't happen of course but phwoar.

Dunno whether Spurs or Arsenal are actually interested, but Keane's passing into midfield (into feet) will make him highly desirable to teams like that. Rio Ferdinand always said he was the best at Utd at passing the ball through the lines from defence, when he was there, and we're seeing lots of evidence of that.

Rio was able to run and turn at the pace of a good athlete.

No top team will want Micheal Keane, don't buy it for a minute.

Edit: I like his passing too. Slide rule at times.

What are peoples thoughts on him now? I've always rated him but I have totally got why others have not. Anyone changed opinion for better or worse on the lad? I reckon he's been great this season

(And apologies Gash forgot there was a thread)

Still not massively convinced but was very good again
